John Nicholas Brown Center
The John Nicholas Brown Center is located in the historic Nightingale-Brown House on the Brown University campus, at 357 Benefit Street. It was created following the death of John Nicholas Brown in 1979, when his widow and children established an educational foundation in his memory to encourage study and original research in American art, history, architecture, and historic preservation. In 1995 the Center became a part of Brown University.
